Kite Realty reports higher revenue, bigger loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Kite Realty Group Trust Inc. reported higher revenue and a bigger loss during its fiscal third quarter, a busy period during which the company raised $60 million from a share offering, bought one Florida shopping center and sold another.

The Indianapolis-based real estate investment trust said Thursday evening that it lost $3.04 million, or 5 cents per share, on revenue of $25.4 million in the quarter ended Sept. 30. That compares to a loss of $643,584, or 1 cent per share, on revenue of $23.5 million during the third quarter in 2011.

The company blamed the higher loss on an increase in depreciation expense of $3 million, partially offset by a $2.1 million increase in income from property operations.

Kite reported third-quarter funds from operations, or FFO, of $7.14 million, or 11 cents per share, compared with $7.05 million, also 11 cents per share, in the same quarter a year earlier. Funds from operations is a common measure of REIT performance.

The FFO figure matched the average of analyst estimates, but the revenue total came up about $1 million short.

The company, which owns interests in 58 retail properties totaling 8.7 million square feet, said the properties were 93.5-percent leased as of Sept. 30, compared with 93 percent at the end of the third quarter in 2011.

During the quarter, Kite raised $60 million by selling more than 12 million shares at a price of $5.20 apiece, using the proceeds to pay down a revolving credit line. The company also closed on more than $60 million in loans for development projects in Seattle and Raleigh, N.C.

The company paid $15.2 million for a Publix-anchored shopping center in Vero Beach, Fla., and sold a center in Coral Springs, Fla., for $8.7 million.

Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $5.8 million for the first nine months of 2012, compared with a net loss in the prior year of $3.9 million.

Kite’s shares were down about 1 percent in early trading Friday, at $5.42.

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
